'Meet our students' - Martin Rose

Sixth Form student, Martin Rose was selected to play for Scotland’s Hockey U18 Boys training squad last year.

As well as studying for his A-levels in French, Classical Civilisation and English Literature, Martin hopes to study Ancient History at university.

What is your favourite subject at school and why?

My favourite subject at school is Classics, as I am particularly interested by Ancient History, I really enjoy studying Classics which is not a subject which is offered at many schools. It is fascinating and every lesson is a joy.

When did you start at Worksop College?

Part-way through year 10.

What is your favourite thing about Worksop College and why?
